Those rumors that Nobhill Tavern would be the next restaurant to shuttered at the MGM Grand that Eater Vegas first reported nearly three weeks ago gained momentum. Now comes word that the Michael Mina restaurant sadly will close on April 15 to make way for a second Michael Morton restaurant on the Strip.
Morton already has La Cave Food & Wine Hideaway at Wynn Las Vegas. Mina is busy getting Pub 1842 open in the former Seablue space at the MGM Grand.
Morton, who co-founded the N9NE Group and whose father created Morton's Steakhouse, is already in the midst of revamping a former laundry for El Cortez into La Comida in Downtown Las Vegas. That restaurant, which should open in April, will feature an entrance through the alley, dining from a 25-foot cocktail bar, church windows and a window overlooking Sixth Street with bar stools for seating. The menu will include dishes such as street corn, tacos and fresh avocados.
Mina's Seablue closed in August to make way for Pub 1842, which will focus on craft beer, snacks, shellfish, sausage and burgers, a menu familiar to the Mina brand and adds plenty of vintage design accents. Mina plans to showcase dishes from the restaurant at Vegas Uncork'd.
